1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Wayne on January 15, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because of the typical high quality of Routledge publications as well as the title which implied the possibility of understanding better the concept of Deconstruction.

Barry Stocker takes us on a very competent overview of Derrida through the themes of Metaphysics, Language, Consciousness, Knowldege, Values, Metaphors and finally Deconstruction.

However, since Deconstruction is not merely a concept or literary method, but a philosophy in itself, I find that I only approach understanding its meaning as I read more and more of Derrida.

Stocker helps us get oriented to Derrida in a fairly "close to the text" approach, rather than the more interpretive approach of Penelope Deutscher's, How to Read Derrida, which I would start with first.
